MSc in Biodiversity, Wildlife and Ecosystem Health

Study commitments

Managing your time.

Semesters and teaching blocks

Each year consists of three semesters, each with two 5-week teaching blocks separated by a non-teaching week. 10-credit courses run during a teaching block; 20-credit courses span both teaching blocks in a semester.

Set aside 20 hours per week to study

During a teaching block you will be expected to be online regularly. You should be prepared to spend an average of 20 hours a week reviewing lecture notes and case studies, interacting with fellow students and the programme team on the discussion boards, researching areas of interest or preparing assignments. As this is an online programme there is plenty of flexibility in terms of choosing when and where to study, as well as the pace at which you work.
